Jon's bees did so well last year that we are adding another colony to his backyard. Here, after making the trek to Brushy Mountain Bee Farm in Moravian Falls, the team from Susan's lab installs a queen and three pounds of workers into their new home.
No kidding. This 12 ft granite statue is believed to be the largest statue of Martin Luther in the Western Hemisphere. It was carved from a single piece of granite from China. Susan enjoyed a day trip to Lenoir-Rhyne University in Hickory, NC, on Tuesday to speak at research day festivities.

(It would also help if one of the city's many obelisks was a destination.)The photo shows Team Walking and Talking in Old Salem, where they successfully completed the task of calculating the number of triangles it takes to make a Moravian star.
...and a sign, both courtesy of Jon. "Beecroft" was a station we never visited on one of the train lines to North Sydney. (Just filling in while we are waiting anxiously for the Scene in Winston-Salem race results to be posted on line!)
